Abstract / Description
Traditional wireless sensor networks (WSNs) face power limitation which is mainly caused due to inter-node data transfer. Multi-sensor nodes, in which multiple sensors are mounted on a single radio board, are becoming popular to counter this issue. However, these sensor nodes may require handling heterogeneous traffic in terms of different bandwidth demand, traffic load and packet sizes. A single traffic based model cannot provide a tractable performance analysis of heterogeneous traffic. In this paper, we propose a heterogeneous traffic-based model to analyze the performance of WSNs. The proposed model is capable of handling traffic of variable bandwidth requirements, load and packet sizes. Our results indicate that heterogeneity of traffic affects the performance of individual traffic and overall network efficiency.
